Laughter of the Totally Free

I want to laugh until my face aches;
I want to laugh until the tears pour down my cheeks;
I want to laugh until my tummy is in agony
And every fibre of my being has experienced sweet release.

I don’t care what anyone else thinks;
I don’t want to be imprisoned by judgement any more.
What others think and feel and experience
Is all of their business and none of mine;
I just want to be free to be whom I was made to be.

I want to laugh until the floor shakes beneath me;
I want to laugh until my tummy can take no more.
I want to laugh the laughter of the totally free
And take whoever seeks freedom on the laughing journey with me.

I don’t care for the prisons of ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ any longer,
I don’t care for the falseness and cheap security.
I don’t care for the discrimination, judgement
And deceptive materialism that people hide behind;
I only care about love and wisdom and being free.

I want to laugh when I wake each morning;
I want to laugh before I fall exhaustedly asleep each beautiful night.
I want to laugh until all around are laughing with me;
I want to laugh out loud and wild and free.
